The "Power Package" isn't more speed/range

What about the "Sport" package?
With a RM 53k premium, it sure adds a few things like:
- 22-inch wheels
- BMW Laser Lights
- Sport brake with blue calipers
- Extra chrome trims
- Sky Lounge panorama glass roof
- 18-speaker Harman Kardon sound system
- Tyre pressure monitoring system
- Parking Assistant Plus
- Driving Assistant Professional package
The BMW iX made its global debut in November 2020 and has already reached Thailand in the form of 20 limited units in July. In Thailand, it is only available in the “iX xDrive50 Sport” trim which is priced at 5,999,000 baht (RM793,400).
With its controversial big-EV grille, the BMW iX replaces the BMW i3 as the compact EV sold by BMW Malaysia. It was around August 2020 last when BMW Malaysia pulled the BMW i3 out of their official pricelist.
